ULI Washington invites you to attend the 10th Annual "Learn From the Best" event. We have assembled an all-star cast of real estate, land use, and design executives. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with these mentors in a small group setting!
Similar to last year, LFTB will be virtual, with different mentors featured at two different sessions. We will kick things off with short introductions of the mentors and Q&A. We will then breakout into small group discussions, which will pair a mentor with several mentees for an open-ended dialogue about real estate careers and lessons learned. The result is a mutually rewarding experience that allows attendees of all ages and experience levels to learn from recognized industry leaders.
